Programmation of the press

Programmation of the press

Simple and intuitive programming, by MecaMotion.

Program the cycle of your choice, using a palette of functions offered by our platform.

  • Positioning
  • All the basic arithmetic operations (+, -, *, /, ...)
  • Waiting Time
  • Different types of jump
  • Measuring signals
  • Recording strength-position
  • ...

You are able to declare up to 254 user variables of each type (LREAL, BOOL, INT,...)

Control the press via a PLC

As part of an automation project, the press can be controlled with a PLC by PROFINET's link,PROFIBUS or ETHERNET.

By this connection, it is possible to control the press:

  • Jog Mode
  • Selection of the part program to be executed
  • Starter the cycle
  • ...

This connection is also used to select the recipe of the part you need to produce. Through this channel, the press can also return you down results.
For this, the MecaMotion platform, gives you the possibility to affect your different user variables directly to inputs/outputs of bus.
Alarms are also forwarded to the PLC in this way.

Using this dialogue via the bus, it is possible to control several presses on the same network.

Process Control

Envelope Programming

The monitoring of the process is performed using an envelope that you set according to your criteria and the Force/Position curve you choose in the database aggregating your various tests.

Runtime process monitoring

  • Setting the envelope by maximum 8 windows
  • 3 types of reactions in case of alarms:
    - Continue
    - Stop
    - Stop and go back
